Dental Exams and School Registration

It’s that time of year again! Many schools have started registration for the 2018-2019 school year, and with that comes dental exam requirements. Children entering Kindergarten, 2nd and 6th grade are required by the state of Illinois to have proof of a dental examination on file with their school. Be sure to maintain your child’s dental exams and meet the dental exam requirements of the state of Illinois. Dr. Orbon and Dr. Maddox are available six days a week to accommodate your schedule. Best wishes for a successful 2018-2019 school year!

Successful Toys for Tots 2017

Thank you to all of our generous staff and patients for donating to Toys for Tots!

Toys for Tots

The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

·       The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.

·       The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.

Both locations of Affiliated Dental Specialists are official collection sites for Toys For Tots. We will be collecting new, unwrapped toys thru December.
